Turf Replacement Rebate Program


PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current popularity of this program, Pre-Inspection appointments may be scheduled out up to 4 weeks.  Please plan accordingly.  Remember, fall is the best time for planting.

  • Low-water-use, climate-appropriate plants, and/or
  • Permeable hardscape, and/or
  • Artificial Grass ((polyethylene and nylon products only)

The program is open to all properties that are served by a City of Napa water account - residential, commercial, industrial, or institutional.  The following per site maximum rebate amounts apply:

     $750 for Single-Family Residential (equivalent to 750 square feet of lawn removed)
     $2,500 for HOA/Multi-Family/Commercial/Industrial/Institutional (equivalent to 2,500 square feet of lawn removed)
Customers may of course remove more turf area than is covered by the rebate program, but the per site maximum $ still applies.

If you are an interested customer, be sure to fully review the Cash For Grass Terms and Conditions.
Customers must consent to brief Pre- and Post-Inspection site visits.
NOTE: Lawn areas to be converted must be historically healthy and irrigated.
Long-dead lawns or lawns already removed at the time of pre-inspection are not eligible for the Cash For Grass rebate.
